Really depends on the size, an M10 was around 8+4 hours as not all parts could fit on my printer's bed, and I think the most figures in 1:72 I've printed simultenously was 19.

I see, so it is something that needs some time. Do you leave it overnight, or it requires a certain amount of supervision every now and then?

So the 19 soldiers took around 12 hours then?

No supervision, and the soldiers take a lot less time as they are shorter - abot 4-5 hours.

Well, the game was promptly lost and I've yet to take pics of my Soviet army, so while I get around doing that, my current project - 10 day group build for anything British, I'm building the IBG/WaW A9 Cruiser. So far base colors are sprayed, time for the details now.

It's a great little kit, went together very nicely. I can recommend it totally :)

Loving the current tank builds, you have a very realistic painting style with the chipped paint and muted colours, hope to see more progress on the current vehicle!

Trumpeter's LAV-R built yesterday evening...not a difficult kit, got in for half price which is nice. I plan to paint it in a desert scheme for Iraq/Afghanistan. I saw that many were in the three-tone NATO camo, but I did not make any modern US vehicles in desert yellow yet, and I don't like masking the three tone camo...

Looks very tricky indeed. I have grown to rather hate Trumpeter's kits, tremendously complex and long to build. I have the turreted version in a diecast model by Altaya.

I found quite the opposite, they are easy to build, greatly simplified with just a handful of fiddly bits. Maybe I've built one too many Dragon kits to be bothered by them :) This was a quick build, home office with some free time.

Some more printed goodies, hopefully soon on my painting bench - Kyoushuneko USMC and Japanese, printed at 80%. Very fun figures.

Also, Wargames Atlantic started their own digital releases, and one of these was an Ansaldo tankette which I have promptly printed - as the tankies uniforms were the same, I can use them as Hungarians too with a different paintjob, which is nice!

those printed soldiers are really nice. I guess you have a 3D printer at home :)
